Storyline

Columbo has to solve a crime at the embassy of a middle-east nation. The culture there is different, and the main suspects have diplomatic immunity. Also, to complicate matters, there is a student demonstration outside the gates, and the king is visiting the embassy. However, Columbo decides to investigate the matter in his own persistent way.

Goofs

When Hassan Salah leaves the embassy to go meat Habib at the cliff, he bends down and uses the key to unlock his car door. He opens the door and the window glass is clearly lowered. He could have just reached through the open window and unlocked the door. More likely, the door wasn't locked to begin with. See more »

Quotes

Kermit Morgan: It is in the best interest of our government if there are no further contacts between yourself and Secretary Salah.
Lt. Columbo: Well, that''s all very well and good except for one thing.
Capt. August: What is that, Lieutenant?
Lt. Columbo: He's the murderer.

Columbo Great as Always, But not enough Mineo
18 May 2002 | by See all my reviews

Hi there. I just saw this movie, and while it is great, like all Columbo shows, I'd like to point out that Sal Mineo is only in the first 25 minutes or so of this movie... just in case someone else, like me, happens to watching to see him. I found myself disappointed.

Otherwise, great movie. I could have done without the non-Arabs acting like Arabs, it was pretty transparent (though Mineo pulled it off quite well). If you happen to be watching for Columbo or Elizondo, they do not disappoint.
